Flat Heroes Switch review

   30/08/2018 at 12:03       CHRIS OTOOLE       0 COMMENTS.
Review by Alex Vaughn.   Have you played N? You’re a black, sprinting, jumping, wall jumping, nameless ninja who has a taste for gold and is, for some reason, trapped in an endless cycle of death. Each level providing the chance for more gold but attempts more and more aggressively to murder you instead.  It is Awesome. It has been iterated on for decades, including the ridiculously fully featured Switch release of N++...
Dead Cells Review

   10/08/2018 at 18:30       CHRIS OTOOLE       0 COMMENTS.
In Dead Cells you play a sploopy plop of snot balanced atop the shoulders of a ninja. I think. It's unclear, though there is lore to be found when you are out and about (watch for blue candles), there's something about prisons and plagues, but you are going to have to play the game yourself to find out, no spoilers for you here. We ain't that kind of website. What I can tell you about is how the game works. It's one of those infernal Rogue light games, you know the s...
Yakuza 0 Review

   07/08/2018 at 18:44       CHRIS OTOOLE       0 COMMENTS.
Review by Steven Christie.   I adore Shenmue. I know I’m not alone. It didn’t have a massive map or insane amount of side-quests, it was just this charmingly focused story set in a really small yet detailed world.  There’s something about the world they’ve built in Yakuza 0 that reminds me of that same Shenmue feel. The entertainment districts the game is set in may not be massive, but they g...
The Mooseman Review

   27/07/2018 at 14:11       CHRIS OTOOLE       0 COMMENTS.
  Review by Alex Vaughan.   The Mooseman is a lesson in Finnish folklore; a world of stories and mystical figures I didn’t know existed before playing, but started reading up on my own as soon as the game ended. Opening my eyes to a new mythology and inspiring me to learn more, is something worthy of praise – it's a rare find when gaming enriches the real world and The Mooseman is worthy of plaudits for that alon...
Kingdom Come: Deliverance From the Ashes DLC Review

   20/07/2018 at 13:16       CHRIS OTOOLE       0 COMMENTS.
Kingdom Come: Deliverance was a real belter of a game, a realistic medieval RPG like nothing else on the market which scored top marks over here on AATG. Developers Warhorse have been pretty forthcoming with the patches and updates, which is great to see, and From the Ashes marks their first paid for expansion to the game. Here Henry will find himself rebuilding the village of Pribisalvitz, which was being held by a bunch of motley bandits. You don't have to have com...
Hockenheimring Returns for F1 2018

   20/07/2018 at 11:31       CHRIS OTOOLE       0 COMMENTS.
F1 2018 returns with its latest instalment on August 24th and includes for the first time the excellent Circuit Paul Ricard, home of the French grand prix, as it returns to the F1 calander after a 10 year hiatus. Circuit Paul Ricard is joined by 20 other official F1 circuits from around the world, including the famous Hockenheim ring. “It is always fantastic to have the real F1 drivers spending time with the game and giving us feedback on the handling and the game as a ...
Red Faction: Guerilla Re-Mars-tered Edition Review

   19/07/2018 at 13:30       CHRIS OTOOLE       0 COMMENTS.
Where does the time go? Back in the heady days of 2009 there was no American Wotsit snorting his own farts in the oval office, nor a UK desperately trying to kick itself in the balls as hard as it possibly can. But there was Red Faction: Guerilla by Volition, the lovely people responsible for the Saints Row series. THQ Nordic have chosen to show the game some love in this so called Re-Mars-tered edition, fully reworking the graphics with juicy new textures and specul...

Review by Rich Boulton.   Any Playstation VR owner will know that you need to be careful in selecting titles to buy for the platform. The promise of VR has inevitably led to a number of low effort, or at least low achievement, titles that will be a sure fire waste of your cash. So what to make of the new VR update for Kona, a low key title from Canadian developer Parabole, originally released to the console in tired old 2D in March? The g...
Conan Exiles Review

Review by Terry Bonds.   Once in a while I find myself late at night getting lost in YouTube, stay with me there is a reason for this start, one of those nights I'd somehow got onto the lonely island again - which is no bad thing - they are bloomin' funny.  I digress from my digressing, I'd only ever watched the video for dick in a box, I didn't know Justin Trousersnake and Andy Samberg had gone and done two "sequels".  So there I was watching 3...
Moonlighter Review

   11/06/2018 at 12:03       CHRIS OTOOLE       0 COMMENTS.
Review by Sam Gibson.   This a great game. It’s a fun game. It looks, sounds and plays nice. There’s a compelling two-tone dynamic that finds you playing for considerably longer than originally anticipated. It’s charming and easily learned while having a breadth that keeps supplying new things to chase, new things to do.  It’s hot and sunny outside and I really want to head to the pool with my young daughter. You have ...
Onrush Review

   07/06/2018 at 10:25       CHRIS OTOOLE       0 COMMENTS.
Review by Rich Boulton.   Codemasters Evo, formerly Evolution Studios of Motorstorm and Driveclub fame, wondered what would happen if you took the best clips out of a Fast and Furious trailer, of metal grinding metal and outrageous looking cars slamming into each other, and made an entire game out of it. They also wondered what happened if you made a hybrid of an arcade racer and a competitive team-based shooter. It turns out that what y...
Omensight PS4 Review

   04/06/2018 at 14:01       CHRIS OTOOLE       0 COMMENTS.
Review by Ashley Fiddes.   Omensight, from spearhead games makers of Stories: Path of Destinies, is an action/murder mystery game in which you, the harbinger, must solve the murder of the godless priestess and save the world.  You appear suddenly on the morning of the apocalypse and find yourself experiencing a war between the Pygarians and the Rodentians.  As you progress through the path laid out in front of you, you witness,...
Runner3 review

   25/05/2018 at 18:21       CHRIS OTOOLE       0 COMMENTS.
Runner3 is an ugly game, that's not a criticism, it's pretty much what developer Choice Provisions were going for. Imagine a cross between Ren and Stimpy and the awesome puppet web series Don't Hug Me, I'm Scared and you'd be some way there. Not content with all this visual splendour your ears will also be accosted by one Charles Martinet, the voice of Mario himself! I hope Nintendo don't know you are moonlighting, Charles, their lawyers are formidable I hear. ...
Space Hulk: Deathwing Definitive Edition Review

Review by Ashley Fiddes.   Space Hulk: Deathwing Definitive Edition on the PS4 is based in the popular Warhammer 40k universe.  Originally released on PC in 2016 the enhanced edition sees it land on PS4 for the first time.   The game sees you take control of a librarian in Deathwing, the 1st company of the Dark Angel’s chapter of space marines, as they enter a giant dead ship – the space hulk.  The first th...
Battle Chasers: Nightwar Review

Review by Ror Brennan.   After the closure of Darksiders' development house Vigil Games back in 2013, fans have been left wondering what next for Joe Madureira, the erstwhile Marvel artist who had co-founded the studio to tell the comic book-inspired tale of The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. While War and his brethren have since moved on to THQ Nordic however, under the stewardship of Gunfire Games (itself home to former Vigil develope...
